This is an ACTUAL conversation that happens between at least two different children (often more than three) every day:
Child 1: I want my Mommy.
Child 2: (to CH1) I want my Mommy.
CH1: (to CH2) My Mommy!
CH2: (to CH1) MY Mommy!
CH1: (to CH2) MY MommY!
CH2: (to CH1) MY MOMMY!
CH1: (begining to cry) My Mommy…
CH2: (to CH1) My Mommy!
CH1: (to Me) My Mommy?
This happens daily, and I still haven’t figured out what’s actually going on in their heads.
